Wandering Poetry:
Poetry has legs, hands, a abdominal and a face, a special glance to make issues and males look deeper, and occasionally to show away with no be aware. Poetry is unpredictable. Its moods could annoy the poet, yet, sadly, he has no selection. keep on with me, says poetry, like a seductive siren, don't depend on me, yet be my spouse for the life of a poem. Poetry chooses time, position and language. Poetry loves to come up, to conceal and to conceal, revealing and concealing itself in accordance with a mazy legislations. Poetry merits adjustments, frightened to reach at Ithaca, but additionally curious to choose up what has been jettisoned at the good way there. Ithaca is the heart beat, the shape is the open sea of poets’ blood and lymph. Fly and Fall. Poetry invited me to go into the physique of a brand new language, to rearrange my global in new shades, tastes, sounds. mom Language is big-hearted. My verses, a small regiment of hunchbacks, have been generously welcomed and remodeled. “We need to locate actual words”, says the Austrian poet Ingeborg Bachmann. it might occur, poet is familiar with his personal language too good to discover the simplicity of fact. The vacationing eye and soul, concentrating current, previous and destiny within the very second: poetry occurs. examine your self, wearing one other language. each language has its personal metabolism. the recent, the by no means recognized observe: the magic note. name it! capture it! Make it develop into actual back. each language has its personal precise phrases and its personal lies. a few of them are welcomed one of the new indicators and logos, a few needs to wait ahead of the door. each poem is a physique, a guy, a global, ready to entwine with truth. you could deeply comprehend a poem in a language you don’t be aware of. Its hidden fact will be blacker than black. You, reader, often is the gentle. Poetry is verbal exchange past evidence. Poetry tells gentle and shadow, greatness and distress. ‘Give your phrases a which means, yet provide them additionally a shadow,’ says the poet Paul Celan. Don’t promote it. Set your self unfastened, yet don’t wander off within the fingers of your loved one. Fly and Fall. a few poems discovered their method into Italian, a few didn't. There are open areas, by no means empty ones. Poetry is sufferer. Poetry can fall in love, poetry should be unjust, poetry can get ill and die and resurrect. Poetry wishes eyes and ears, hearts and souls. Poetry desires to inform and to shuttle, desirous to meet the reader for whom it was once written for. Poetry has to be wanted, to be jam-packed with water and wine, love and hate, by no means with indifference. Poetry says: contact me. Poetry likes to examine itself in lots of masquerades. Poetry says: Come nearer. I comprise multitudes. Poetry desires to dance: within the mild, in the dead of night and within the half-light of our day-by-day paintings of residing and loving.
